CAMplete TruePath software offers more than just serving as a GibbsCAM Post processor. TruePath’s software suite also includes verification and simulation tools dedicated to 5-axis machining centers. The versatile and flexible software package offers the end user everything needed to analyze, verify and simulate multi-axis tool paths in a 3D environment.
GibbsCAM is an easy to use and powerful CAM system for CNC machine programming that integrates seamlessly with any CAD package. GibbsCAM offers a wide range of programming solutions for 5-axis milling, turning, multi-task machining, among others. GibbsCAM was developed to be efficient for the programmer, the machinist, and at the machine. GibbsCAM helps you get more programs done faster.
GIbbsCAM’s 5-axis solution is ideal for finishing or roughing parts, while still giving you full control over your tool access alignment and motion. Users have several 5-axis options to choose from, tailored to their specific needs. Regardless of the rotational combination users can program with confidence using GibbsCAM 5-axis milling.
GibbsCAM 5-Axis Option supports simultaneous 4- and 5-axis machining with various tool types. In combination with GibbsCAM MTM, it also supports sophisticated multi-task machines with live tooling on articulated heads. For additional accuracy, the 5-axis Option provides collision detection and gouge checking for various tool shapes, with appropriate avoidance options. Toolpath is verified, on the fly, while GibbsCAM Machine Simulation can provide further verification with dynamic display of work piece, cutting tools and all machine-tool components in motion.
With the GibbsCAM CAMplete Interchange Plug-in, project data is easily transferred from GibbsCAM to CAMplete TruePath. Collision checking and material removal simulation takes the guess work out of the process by providing an accurate representation of what will happen on the machine. With TruePath you can ensure the safety of every line of G-code you run, easily create and edit unlimited custom G-Code formats and apply them to any project.
